The State Department on Wednesday said Tuesday's election results don't change Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's plans to step down.
"I think the administration has accomplished a lot," he said. "They've gone a long way to restoring America's dignity internationally and it's extremely important that there's a smooth transition."
More than any political calculation, however, Mr. Schwartz said the White House is likely to weigh the secretary of state nomination very carefully to avoid sacrificing the successes it has achieved in foreign policy over the past four years.
